Music & Wellness

The Houston Symphony believes that music can complement health care throughout the illness trajectory and increase the quality of life for patients, families and caregivers. The Houston Symphony currently partners with the Periwinkle Arts In Medicine Program at Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Centers to provide weekly music at patients’ bedsides and in group sessions. Additionally, in a recording studio housed at Texas Children’s, the Houston Symphony works with Purple Songs Can Fly, a partner of the Periwinkle Arts In Medicine Program, to help children with cancer and blood disorders and their siblings write and record their own songs.
